In cooperation with the HatchSpace, we are pleased to announce a new class offering with River Gallery School. This workshop will be taught by Tim Hayes and will take place at the HatchSpace

Learn the basics of framing pictures and paintings. Each participant will learn to hand-cut mitered corners on a miter box (which they will take home after the class), learn the basics of putting together a sample frame and corner joinery, finish their sample frame with a low VOC coating, and learn about the greater possibilities in framing, simple and complex.

Materials for sample frames are provided. Hand-mitering boxes are provided and can be kept. Saws will be made availble for use in the shop, but participants must have their own saws for outside use.

 Tim has had two careers: initially (and always) a woodworker, principally of furniture and timber frames. Then in midlife, he became a middle school teacher and was fortunate to work at Marlboro School for 24 years. In addition to math, science, writing and drama, he taught his students how to make mortise & tenon furniture from saplings harvested on Hogback Mtn. He appreciates the hands of an novice, delights when students find how to use the sharp edge of a tool, and is inspired by what students  plan and create with their newfound skills.   Recently retired from teaching, Tim is currently building a wood shop/ weaving studio to return to the business of making furniture with his partner, Pam Bullock, weaver/felter, on  Lost Mile Rd.
